This release is a proof of concept (POC) demonstrating a possible way of adding a digital object identifier (DOI) field to the APA style which comes with Microsoft Word 2007/2010. Details of this POC were first posted on the microsoft.public.word.docmanagement newsgroup
- The techniques used in this release produce XML which does not validate against the open xml specification. This note should only concern you if you are working with an editor which requires strict validation. Microsoft Word 2007/2010 does not care if your xml validates or not!
- The files are not intended for use with Microsoft Word 2008 for Mac. Although the principles of the POC remain, the Mac version of Word uses slightly differently structured source files.
- This style is a direct extension of the version that comes with Word 2010. Hence, all errors spotted in this style are also available in the original style and will not be fixed.
